I had an awesome time climbing with MDA. I travelled across the world to climb at Indian Creek and I was not disappointed . The experience of the guides gave me confidence and tips on how to attack those famous splitter cracks. MDA were professional and flexible and I would recommend them to anyone interested in rock climbing in the... More

So glad I found Nate. When all other guides turned me down due to time of year, Nate welcomed me! My guide was Ed and he taught me so much about climbing and Utah in general. He really customized my climbs to what I wanted and challenged me. I will be going back to to Moab and will definitely be... More

I suprised my girlfriend (who is afraid of heights) with the Morning glory trip which consisted of a total of 3 miles of hiking and 2 rappels. Jay was our guide and did a great job on keeping us safe and teaching us how to do our first rappels ever. We made it through fine and would highly suggest trying... More

We had connected with a few companies to take us rock climbing and we decided to go with Moab Desert Adventures because of how prompt and informative the owner, Nate, was in his correspondence. It was a decision that we did not regret! We had Marie as our guide to climb Ancient Art tower. She was incredible!! Very friendly, helpful,... More

We also took an additional 2 mile hike through Negro Bill Canyon which was one of our favorite hikes in Moab. Nate (the owner) and Jay were were both awesome and customer service was as good...

We recently did a 4 person canyoneering trip led by Marie and had an amazing time! As someone who was new to this and feeling overwhelmed and scared Marie, our guide, made me feel safe and secure. She was extremely helpful and knowledgeable and made my first time experience one I will never forget. I highly recommend using Moab Desert... More

This was my second trip to Moab and my second time using Moab Desert Adventures and once again it was awesome. The first call to Nate, to set up the trip, was terrific. He suggested we do the Hidden Splendor hike and it was perfect. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and made us feel safe the entire time - particularly... More
